When a person uses drugs like heroin or any other substance it doesn't just affect them, it affects loved ones as well. The choices that are made when it comes to abusing drugs like heroin, Xanax or other substances not only put the user's life in danger but sadly others too. This goes to show you just how desperate and impaired a person's thinking and comprehension becomes when they abuse heroin or other substances or have become addicted to them.

According to BND.com, parents of a four year old child not only put their lives in jeopardy but their child's as well recently. Bringing your child with you to purchase heroin is dangerous enough but passing out after taking 4 Xanax and injecting 4 pills of heroin with your child still in the vehicle is beyond words. Fortunately no accident occurred because when the woman attempted to drive out of the parking lot she stopped in a lane of traffic according to witnesses. It's sad to think their 4 year old daughter was in the back seat of the vehicle with one unconscious adult and the other was unconscious with a syringe in her hand.

The abuse of heroin sadly leads to addiction when a person continues to repeat their use and unfortunately the families are affected as well. This couple and their daughter didn't end tragically but that's not always the case.
